Seahorse Races

A little tongue in cheek page for the Under the Sea challenge for Journal 52.  I just couldn't get the idea of seahorses racing so I just went with the silliness of it.

This page is done in my recycled altered WordPerfect Manual. I was in a hurry so the page is really wrinkled. I didn't wait for the glue to dry well between the pages. 

The wrinkles worked to my advantage since I was going for the look of water and movement. The paint is a sky blue and a lime green painted in wavy lines over each other with a silicone pastry brush.  The seaweed  is yet another fiber from my stash. I shredded it to give it a wispy feel.  The top 4 seahorses are a sizzix die and a gelli print. The little fish are Angel Company stamps.

  1. Boo, this is perfect! The wavy water is just as it should be. And you are right. A sea horse race is quite fitting. Beautifully made!

  2. I think this is most adorable Boo. I really like the wavy water and the colours are fabulous. The fiber adds a lovely touch, like seaweed swaying in the current. Looks like you had fun creating this :D

  3. Such a fun piece...I love the movement of with the rippling water...good job... a great bit of humour here too!!

  4. The ripple effect is so perfect for water and what you are portraying. I believe Bob Ross says that would be a "Happy Accident." Blessings, Janet PPF
